Generates a string of pseudo-random bytes, with the number of bytes determined by the length parameter.
It also indicates if a cryptographically strong algorithm was used to produce the pseudo-random bytes, and does this via the optional strong_result parameter. It's rare for this to be false, but some systems may be broken or old.
The length of the desired string of bytes. Must be a positive integer. PHP will try to cast this parameter to a non-null integer to use it.
If passed into the function, this will hold a bool value that determines if the algorithm used was "cryptographically strong", e.g., safe for usage with GPG, passwords, etc. true if it did, otherwise false
Returns the generated string of bytes on success, or false on failure.
